free giveaway for three bucks...

lots of people hate poetry readings, right? don't they? well, I do. it's why I don't do em. I'm not averse to poems being read, I just can't stand the public show, and generally don't care for crowds, people, public areas, etc. but the forthcoming book of letters by Hosho and I is going to feature a special edition which will include a cd of us reading excerpts from a few letters, backed by a freakish soundscape created by the Atlanta-based spacefunk supergroup Noot d'Noot, and while I was in the studio recording my parts of the letters, I also recorded about thirty poems.

that cd will be issued sometime in the future accompanied by a special chap with all the poems, but in the meantime, I've got an offer for you: for three bucks I'll send you a three poem cd excerpt from the Noot Sessions with the poems eclipse, struggling up and the hours that matter complete with strange, ethereal backing sounds from them Noot boys, along with a signed broadside of hours letterpress printed by Bill Roberts of Bottle of Smoke Press for the Guerilla Poetics Project broadside series (#5 from the GPP; check it out here).

if you care to mock my voice, you'll have to hear it first to be effective. so paypal (or email me for a cash-sending address) three bucks for postage and shit (I ain't rich) to thelastpoet[at]hotmail[dot]com along with your addy and I'll send you the three poem cd and the signed broadside to enjoy. maybe you'll be inspired to purchase A Sound To Drive Away The Coming Darkness after hearing the melodious tones of my magical southern voice,* as well as check out the galactic musical carnival that is Noot d'Noot.

three bucks. I'm cheap and easy.

okay, i've heard your voice, and while i will admit to its cosmically orgasmic timbre, it ain't all that.

I just sent my order in. I HAVE NOT heard your voice before, so I'm looking forward to putting a spoken voice to the poetic voice on the page!
